M-9 Gore-Tex Side Zip Boot - E02500N
Consignment arrived extremely quickly, secure & intact. Upon opening the box, I was in shock to see such careful packaging of the actual boots!
As soon as they were out of their box, I placed my feet inside & couldn't believe how comfortable they felt at the onset - I own a small handful of tactical boots [Bates M-9, Delta B516, Magnum Spider 8.1 Urban SZ & Viper Tactical] & find the Bates M-9 comparable to my Vipers, which are the most comfortable of all the tactical boots I own. The Bates M-9s fit is perfect, not too tight in regards to width & not too loose in & around the heel area, all-in-all. . .just perfect like my Vipers!
Build quality is extremely high & on par with my Magnum Spider 8.1 Urban SZs. other than that, they have yet to be tested this weekend!
5-star product & highly recommended if you're looking for comfortability, high quality build & an aesthetically overall look.
